While traveling along the Icefield Parkway from Lake Louise to Jasper we stopped at the Columbia Icefield. Here we took the Ice Explorer Glacier Tour. What a thrilling excursion this was. We boarded the Ice Explorer with our driver/tour guide, Simon (pictured). Simon was very informative and also very funny. We learned a lot about glaciers and aslo about the ice explorer. We spent about 45 minutes on the glacier which gave us plenty of time to walk around and explore. After the glaciers tour we were taken to the glacier skywalk which was very interesting. I could see there were people hesitant (those fearful of heights)about waking on this glass walkway in fear of it giving way. But it is perfectly safe and I totally enjoyed the experience. It also helped that we had a perfect weather day with excellent visiablilty. this is a must-do excursion if traveling along the Icefield Parkway! Maybe you will be lucky enough to have Simon as your tour guide.

Our guide Ness did an awesome job of driving the ice crawler and providing both educational and entertaining information during our visit to the Athabasca glacier.

About This Deal



No trip to Jasper is complete without a visit to the famed Columbia Icefield, the largest ice field in the Canadian Rockies. Jaw-dropping views of towering mountains, rocks, ice and pure white snow as far as the eye can see. From the Discovery Centre, you will board a specialized Ice Explorer that will take you down a frozen roadway to the Athabasca Glacier. Along the way, your driver will provide commentary about glaciers, their impact upon the local ecosystem, and the environmental changes rapidly transforming these massive scenic wonders. Once you reach the Athabasca Glacier, you will have the opportunity to hop out, walk along the glacier and even fill up your water bottle with pure, pristine snowmelt.
Once the tour is complete, you will head over to the Glacier Skywalk, where you will walk along the glass bottom walkway out over the cliff's edge. After stopping to appreciate the incredible view and capture a few photographs, it's back to the Discovery Center.
